  1. Thanks for joining the group @Acies! I've been on LOA for a bit, but still check the forums every once in a while! I don't know how active others may still be in the group, but you are welcome to start any discussion threads!

  2. @RoguishZero Those both sound like really fun Halloween events! While I personally haven't been to any in the recent years (I usually spend Halloween at home with friends and scary movies, tasty treats, and good fun), but I spent one season working at a local Halloween haunted maze as scare talent!

     

    It was a creepy steampunk maze and I was a half dead steampunk pirate of sorts. My favorite scare was rounding a corner and screaming bloody murder into the faces of these 6'+ basketball players and one of them got so scared that he just collapsed on the ground for a second. (I did stop to make sure he was okay--which he was--but it was one of the most vivid memories from my time there lol). Also, because I spent every weekend screaming for a month and a half, I would spend the rest of the week between sounding like a chain smoker lol

  3. @RoguishZero No worries on the double post haha! Also, many of those movies on your list are on mine too! 

     

    And I totally agree with your thoughts on SAW! While there are many sequels, I do enjoy how they are all connected!

  4. What are some of your favorite scary movies? I'm hoping to find some new ones and maybe we could even stream some for people to watch together as Halloween approaches! 

     

    Some of my personal faves are:

    - Hush

    - Veronica

    - The SAW series

    - and a bunch of others I can't remember rn

     

    I also have a HUGE list of scary movies I want to watch and I find that watching scary movies is always done best when watching together! So please share some of your favorite scary movies or movies you haven't seen yet (but want to) and we can try to get a few scary movie parties going throughout the month of October! 👻

  5. Hiya everyone!

     

    I know @Calypso589 recently streamed Layers of Fear for people to enjoy, and it got me thinking what other scary games we could stream or play together! 

     

    I personally, play Dead by Daylight, and am looking into getting Phasmaphobia and Pacify, which are also multiplayer games for people to enjoy! 

     

    In my Steam library I also have Amnesia: The Dark Descent, The Evil Within, Left 4 Dead (2), Pathologic 2, and Resident Evil 7 Biohazard!

     

    Let us know in this thread what games you would like to watch or play together! 😄

  6. Is the RoH guild still a thing? I'm pretty new to PoE, but am enjoying leveling my ranger! I would appreciate an invite and/or any tips and tricks people might have for the game!

    My character's name is SaviiMoonshadow by the way!

  7. OMG I can't believe we're already past the halfway point for the month! I hope those that are participating in Nano are having a great time and that everyone is taking care of themselves! ❤️ 

  8. I'm in the same boat @Eskili! My move kinda put a hold on my prep for the month, but I'm planning to watch lots of authortube (writers on youtube) and participate in a lot of writing sprints to work toward hitting my goal of 50k! Also, happy writing everyone! 😄

    What is this Camp NaNoWriMo? I'm interested, but not entriely sure what it entails @QuietlyExisting.

    To answer your question, Nanowrimo is short for "National Novel Writing Month"! It is an organization that helps promote writing, creativity, and productivity through community and events! Technically, the "official" novel writing month is November (where writers of all walks of life attempt to write 50k+ words in 30 days), but Nanowrimo also hosts "Camp Nanowrimo" at different points in the year to keep everyone engaged and motivated to write until November comes back around! The two camps off the top of my head are April and July! If you want to check out their website, you can do so HERE! I'm also happy to answer any other questions you might have @RogueLamb!

     

    Also, if anyone wants an invite to the Nanowrimo group I created on their site, just poke me with an @ in this thread or a PM on discord and I will invite you! (I just need your Nanowrimo username to send out the invites!)

    @witchboltsI still had the same problem, but I switched to Firefox and it worked. I guess NaNoWriMo doesn't like Chrome. lol :) 

    Weird...I also use chrome and it works for me. The nano site has been known to have the occasional bug, but I'm glad you got it working on Firefox!

  11. A bit late to the party, but I will be doing Camp Nanowrimo when it comes again this July! I have created a cabin for us under Writers of RoH, in case anyone is interested in joining! Whether you have a serious writing goal or just want to have fun and get some writing/editing in, all are welcome to join! You can check out our cabin page HERE😄

     

    Just gonna casually tag everyone in the interest group, because I know we've gotten some new peeps in the last few months! (And even if you're not planning to do Nanowrimo, I would still love to hear about any of your current writing projects!)

  12. This is a great idea @Medusa! Thank you for sharing!

     

    It's been ages since I've written any haikus, but here's mine!

     

    Fire and fury fall

  13. With all the craziness going on, I totally forgot about Camp Nano starting up! I definitely want to get some writing in and thank you for the reminder! 😄

  14. Apologies for not updating this sooner, but I hope you all had an awesome Nanowrimo! 🥳

     

    I personally added a combined total of 62k words to two of my writing project during the month, and I'm really proud of myself! No matter how many words you wrote last month or beyond, the important part is that you're writing! I'm planning to start a draft for a new lgbt/fantasy story that I've been plotting recently and this will likely be my project for the winter!

     

    Let me know how your Nanowrimo went and what your plans are going forward! 

  15. Hi everyone! I recently came across this awesome website for writing that turns your writing into a game! 4thewords has an awesome community and the game itself lets you decorate your character, complete quests that encourage writing, and fight monsters that you literally battle with your word count! I've only been using it for two days, but I'm really enjoying it and have noticed that it has motivated me to write more and stay focused! They currently have a fun event going on for Nanowrimo with aliens, but this site works for pretty much any writing!

     

    There is also a place to save your project that lets you create sections and easily create new documents! (I've personally been using the site for my sprints and then copying my progress over to my Scrivener document!)

     

    While this is technically a paid service ($5/month), they give you a free month when you make your account! If you are interested in checking this out (link to site is HERE) and decide to make an account (or already have an account), feel free to use my referral code: JXIUS96421

     

    There is also a bonus code I found online for some bonus items for your account too, which is: TOMBSTONE

     

    Happy writing everyone!

  16. Hi everyone! I wanted to start a thread where we can discuss possible dates and times for future write-ins in discord!

     

    I am free pretty much all day Wednesday and Thursday (with the exception of 9pm EST for ESO RP), and could do some late night stuff Friday and Saturday! Let me know in this thread what days/times work best for you all, and we'll get something scheduled to hangout, do some writing sprints, and motivate each other to write! 😄

  18. Wow! I can't believe it has already been 5 days since Nanowrimo started! I just passed 8k words tonight and I'm working on Chapter Three of my novel draft! I have a doctor's appointment, a job interview, and some other errands to run tomorrow, but I promise I'll work on setting up write-in dates for us tomorrow afternoon! I also added a calendar page to the interest group, so that we can list any write-ins or other events we want to feature!

     

    Happy writing everyone! I believe in you and we can do this! 😄

  19. Hey everyone! I hope Nanowrimo is going well so far for all of you that are participating! My Nano journey has been a bit bumpy so far, but I'm staying on top of my word count goals and am proud of the progress I've made! my brain might totally be goo by the end of this though

     

    @Morgani @Jae Onasi @Laysa For a long time, I have also been on the bandwagon of "all first drafts are terrible," and have, at times, hated some of my writing. But I read something today that really changed my opinion and I would like to share it with you all! It's from a tumblr post I saw, while I was scrolling through my dash for inspiration/prompts earlier.

    Your first draft is not terrible.

     

    It is not any sort of insulting name you call it.

     

    It is a baby.  A young, inexperienced baby that might throw up on your shirt and cause you to lose sleep at night but you love it all the same and will patiently feed it and tuck it into bed at night with a kiss no matter what happens.

     

    You do not call a baby stupid or awful because they are new to the world and do not have the ability or knowledge to function on their own.  Instead, you nurture and teach them so they grow up smart and strong and capable.

     

    Such it is with a first draft.  A first draft is not bad because it needs care and attention. Don’t insult it because it is newly written down with ideas that are not yet fully formed.  In fact, that is the reason why it is AMAZING.  It’s a DRAFT!  The FIRST one for the story!  LOOK at it!  It exists!  It is ALIVE!  And it is YOURS, this story you made.  

    So be proud of your first draft baby and, most importantly, be proud of yourself. 

     

    So here is a toast to making our baby drafts the best they can be and to helping them grow! Remember to treat yourself and your writing with kindness! ❤️
